Darkhorse – 9.04.21

PAX: 13 Total. A perfect number not realized until just now, given that we were honoring the 13 that lost their lives in Afghanistan.

The stage was set. A candle was lit for each soldier who gave their life in Afghanistan. The candle was placed in a paper bag that had their name, age, and an exercise listed.
We started the morning off by listening to the Whitney Houston rendition of the National Anthem.  Tears were shed.
We worked out at the pavilion where we performed the list of workouts below. Between each exercise we carried a weight and walked to the basketball ct where we held a 1 minute plank during which we refrained from talking. We then moseyed back to the pavilion and performed the next exercise.
The number of reps we did was determined by the age of each soldier (as noted in parenthesis)13 lives lost – 1 flag, 13 candles
